Overview

From the classic arched top curves of the body to the distinctive rivets on the front and back, there is simply no other guitar like the Chrome Normandy Archtop Guitar.

The Normandy rosewood-on-maple neck is shaped similarly to those found on old-school jazz guitars”not too fat¦not too thin. The resonant, chrome aircraft-grade aluminum body produces smooth, warm tones that ring true and long. Sustain is increased significantly when compared to that of a conventional wooden guitar body. Normandy Old School Humbuckers with Alnico 5 magnets are overwound to 12k ohms for higher output, powerful midrange, and driving tone.

This is a deceptively solid instrument. You may be able to snap the neck, but the body will stand up to the most aggressive punk-inspired outbursts. The Normandy weighs 8.6 lb.”roughly the same (or less) than most other electric guitars. It maintains perfect balance on a strap and is so comfortable you'll play longer and better.

With the sound, the look, the feel, the durability, and the craftsmanship that went into this one-of-a-kind chrome guitar, you would expect to pay far more for this boutique instrument.

Normandy guitars are made one-at-a-time and are built to stand the test of time from one gig to the next.
